I am Chris Hardwick. This podcast used to be called Nerdist. Now it is not. It is still basically just me talking about stuff and things with my two nerdy friends Jonah Ray and Matt Mira when they’re available, and usually someone more famous and smarter than all of us. Swearing is still fun, so we still do that occasionally. I hope you like this new iteration which is the same as before, but if a name hangs you up unhealthily I’m sure you will not hesitate to unfurl your rage not only in the ‘reviews’ section but also now on all the various social media platforms that have popped up since we started in 2010, effectively murdering blogs.
Lin Shaye (Insidious, Kingpin, There's Something About Mary) bonds with Chris over their love of house restoration and decoration, Lins talks about how she sort of fell into acting and the first few acting gigs she got. Lin then tells the story about how she got a meeting with Jack Nicholson, she talks about creating her characters for Dumb and Dumber and Kingpin, how she just loves what she does and her new movie The Final Wish, in theaters January 24!
